Has put together a run of three solid and consistent efforts in defeat recently. Not getting any younger though and may find one or two better handicapped sorts lurking.
Only win came in claiming company at Ballinrobe 12 months ago and has struggled on five subsequent starts including a dismal effort at Gowran Park last month. Hard to fancy against these rivals.
14-race maiden whose best efforts in 2018 came over middle distances. Lost her way towards the end of the year but has returned with a couple of encouraging efforts at Gowran Park and Cork last month. Open to improvement and likely to go well.
10-race maiden who has failed to hit the frame in four starts on turf. Recent efforts have been below-par and has not shown enough overall to be of interest here.
Without success in nine Flat starts but has hit the frame on a couple of occasions from seven turf engagements. Has shown little or no aptitude in recent starts here and at Down Royal to be considered in this company.
Has failed to hit the frame in eight Flat starts on turf including a number of desolate efforts since April. On balance probably has quite a bit to find in this contest.
Five race maiden who can be forgiven his most recent start at Tipperary earlier this month. April's promising efforts have caught the eye and the Fast Company gelding is entitled to be in the mix.
10-race maiden who has failed to score on five starts on turf. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Intello filly who is without success in nine starts including a couple of below par efforts at Gowran Park and Roscommon earlier this month. Others appear to have more scope for improvement.
Possibly ran a career best on turf when finishing fourth of 12 beaten 1L in a bunch finish at the back end of last month in a Fairyhouse 1m2f handicap. Needs to back that performance up and holds strong place claims.
Winner of one of her 14 career starts on the Flat, sole win coming on the AW at Dundalk. Well held over hurdles recently and makes little appeal in this contest.
Has yet to add to her sole win at Galway over 1m4f in October. Not beaten far on latest start at Fairyhouse on Friday and a repeat of that effort should see her in the hunt for more prize money.
Has suffered a number of heavy defeats in three starts since last month and remains a lowly 45-rated handicapper on the Flat, without success in seven starts on turf. Others make more appeal.
Without a win in seven starts on turf and finished well down the field when never nearer in a Fairyhouse 1m4f handicap on Friday. Overall record casts doubt on her ability to get competitive.
